Over 31,100 Icons for Windows, Mac and Linux

Whenever I want to customize the appearance of my PC, fancy up a document, make a powerpoint slide shine, or enhance a blog article I often use icons. Yes, the same type of icons (but only better) that you see on your computer’s desktop. Icons are excellent graphic enhancements and the professionally crafted icons often are three dimensional in appearance.


An excellent resource for icons is the web site Icon Archive. Currently the site boasts an archive of over 31,100 icons in 1097 sets from 260 different authors. The majority of the icons I explored can be used for non-commercial purposes, such as what I mentioned previously. You will find that these icons are of professional quality and there is something there for just about any subject you can think of.

How good are these icons?  Here is an example:

      Thank you for your support!
